What’s the compromise? A bright shower curtain can provide an easy way to inject instant character into a bathroom, while plain, heavy white designs work wonderfully in heritage-style spaces, especially with a roll-top bath as seen in the previous photo. The key to keeping naysayers happy is to ensure your rail is hung so that the person showering doesn’t feel hemmed in, with the curtain constantly clinging to wet skin because it’s too close. Waterproof liners are key, too – ensure yours hangs inside the bath while the decorative outer curtain can do its job of looking pretty on the outside. Sewn-in weights in the hem are a luxury touch, too. Keep your curtain looking its best by closing it after showering, so it has the chance to dry unhindered, and also by running it – especially the liner – through the washing machine regularly, with a dash of bicarbonate of soda along with your normal detergent.And invest in really good curtain rings, too. It’s a small touch that can make a big difference – for example, oiled bronze would be a nice vintage-style addition, and choosing a design that glides smoothly will make a bigger difference than you might imagine.Shower curtains vs shower screens is a hot topic in our Advice section.

Choose statement shower curtainsUsually restricted to a supporting role, the shower curtains in this Edinburgh flat are the stars of the show. They’re backed with a plastic curtain, and the fabric itself is lined with pink ticking, making them feel as luxurious and heavy as any statement window drapes and giving this space the less ‘bathroom-y’ feel its owner was after.Here, the fixed-head shower and hand-held extension are positioned on separate walls, so the latter, fussier part of the shower is tucked behind one of the curtains, leaving the prettier part on show.

Hang a show-stopping shower curtainThe much-maligned shower curtain is overdue a design renaissance, offering an easy and affordable way to spruce up your bathroom. Easier to maintain than glass screens (where limescale is often an issue), there are plenty of patterns available, meaning you can change the whole look of your space with one small tweak. These fancy floral numbers feature normal fabric lined with a waterproof plastic curtain, an idea that really opens up the design possibilities.

Don’t forget the showerShower curtains are a super-functional feature, often reflected in very generic styles, but don’t overlook this opportunity to add style to your bathroom. Look for an unusual design, like this beautiful vintage-style print, and finish the look with complementary artwork and accessories.Which is best – a shower curtain or a shower screen?

The double shower curtains are quite the feature in Jessica’s pink bathroom. ‘They are lined with a plastic curtain and the fabric itself is lined with pink ticking, so they’re quite luxurious, heavy curtains. They really prettify, dress up and soften the room and make it look much less bathroom-y.’Jessica already had two mirror panels and decided to use them on the side of the bath. ‘It visually opens up the space, giving the impression the floor runs underneath the bath. Ideally, I’d have liked one big panel, but I made use of what I had.’The Carrara marble basin top is a bespoke design.Curtain fabric, GP & J Baker. Walls painted in Middleton Pink, Farrow & Ball.
